    I bought almost 750gr of (non Granny Smith) sour green apples as I was craving green apples so badly. Unfortunately, I brought home really sour, thick-skinned and hard-to-bite green apples. I only ate probably three apples from the whole bag and still had lots of sour green apples leftover in the fridge - which I found pretty inedible to be eaten just like that. In the end, I decided to make use of them for Apple Pie, something that my husband has challenged me to do for a long time.


    • For the Pie Crust:
    • 175gr Flour
    • 15gr Castor Sugar
    • 110gr Chilled Butter, cut in small cubes
    • 2 tbsp Ice Water
    • For the Apple Filling:
    • 600gr Apples, peeled and thinly sliced
    • 120gr-150gr Sugar, depending on the apples' sourness
    • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice (I omitted this yesterday)
    • 1 tbsp Cinnamon Powder
    • 1 tbsp Corn Starch
    • 1 tbsp Butter


    1. To make the pie crust: In a large bowl/container, combine the flour, castor sugar and chilled butter with fork or fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
    2. Add the iced water onto the mixture and incorporate well with hands until the dough holds together and is not sticky to the container/bowl.
    3. Turn the dough into a ball, cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about one hour before using.
    4. To make the apple filling: In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon powder. Let them sit for minimum 30 minutes to capture the juice
    5. Once the juice comes out, drain the sliced apples and collect the juice.
    6. Cover the drained sliced apples with corn starch. Mix well and set aside.
    7. Bring to boil the apples' juice with butter until it's syrupy and caramelized. Set aside.
    8. To assemble: Transfer the flattened pie crust dough onto the pie pan.
    9. Arrange the sliced apples on top of the flattened pie crust dough in the pie pan. Pour the apple syrup onto the sliced apples evenly.
    10. In a preheated oven, bake the Apple Pie for about 30-40 minutes or until the pie crust is golden brown and the apples are tender (but not mushy).
    11. Garnish with sifted icing sugar, if desired.
